This is my first book by Annabel Joseph. I found this book very hot and the love scenes great!. I did feel a little put off by the hero, Hunter the Marquess of Townsend. But quickly grew to like him. I think too the heroine, Lady Aurelia started off a little slow for me too. But they came together and my mind changed quickly. This is the first book in the series "Properly Spanked" and I am quickly getting to the next book!
